We’re a Perfect Pair

Just popping in, to quickly share this card. Super enjoy this stamp set from Lil’ Inker. I used so much LI over the past weekend. And now, I want all the things! LOL :)  This stamp set is called: Perfect Pairs and has a coordinating die set that really makes it that much more fun! I’m adding them both to my never ending wishlist!😉

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #302! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! Wow, I barely missed a few MFT Sketch Challenges in over a 1.5 years, and then I missed a lot of them! Ah, Life.❤😉photoI just enjoyed an awesome crafty weekend full of laughs, and hugs, and craftiness! I am having a hard time adjusting back to reality.🙂 To hug your crafty friends in person is priceless, and then I met so many new friends too. Just AWESOME and so heartwarming!❤

Anywho, they were all generous to share their stamps, so I borrowed these, and made this cutie card.🙂

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_wmThis little guy! Too fun!🙂

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_00_wmI used Copic markers to color him, and kept the rest pretty clean and simple.

I’m just popping in with a quick share. I made this card for a friend because I knew she would get a kick out of it.🙂 I am not really a flower person, and I knew she would enjoy this for that reason.🙂

hawkins_jill_seriously_00_wmThis Paper Smooches flower is quick and simple. Just my cup of tea.hawkins_jill_seriously_wmKept it simple with three orange inks, a pop of green and some quick wonky stitching.

Coffee and Bacon! :)

With a title like that, breakfast awaits!🙂

This new Planner-Yum set from Technique Tuesday is a riot! I mean, “Today Calls for Bacon”. Bacon-tastic!🙂
hawkins_jill_bacon_wmI thought it would be fantastic to rain bacon. hahaaahaaa!🙂 A simple, smile inducing card!hawkins_jill_bacon_00_wmI stamped all the bacon, masked off a spotlight area, and blended in some Distress Ink. Then I colored in all the bacon very simply with Copic Markers. Too funny😉

Next up, the beloved Cup of Get Going:

hawkins_jill_coffee_wmI watercolored with Zigs on this one and added googley eyes, of course.😉 I also used the Photo Frame die and the Heart Strings die for the perfecto hearts.

I remember watching the MFT Superstar Design contest last year and thought how much fun it looked to participate. I was excited to see year two of the contest this year. As time goes, well, I’m barely sneaking one in, but here it is!

PrintI do love a colorful card!🙂

hawkins_jill_hello-bright_00_wmSome good ol’ die cutting of the die cut. Good times.🙂hawkins_jill_hello-bright_wmFor this, I first die cut the Four Way Chevron and inlaid that. Then I cut that panel with the Chunky Chevron Cover Up. I put down the Chunky Chevron panel and glued on all the Chevron bits in and removed it. The letters are the HIgh Rise Alphabet. (A long time fave!) I added a little stitching to finish it off, and whammo, done!🙂

I admittedly almost binned this one, because it seemed too busy. But in the end, I kept going, and eventually warmed to it a bit.🙂

I’m going to hop over there and check out some of the entries soon! I love a good contest–so much talent!🙂 Check it all out HERE.

Love Birds

Sharing another card the September Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge! I’m hoping this one arrived at its destination by now.🙂

hawkins_jill_lovebirds_wmI had previously stamped and watercolored a bunch of little birdies from Paper Smooches Feathered Friends, which made it quick and fun to make a few cards!hawkins_jill_lovebirds_00_wmI hand drew in the line on the bottom and then added some ink blending. Fortunately, it looks a lot smoother in person!🙂 The little heart is from the Heart Die Frame. I just added some sparkle! Oh, and I colored the edge of a white card base to perfectly match the card details. Whoot!🙂

The Feathered Friends have coordinating dies, which I also used.
